At the Sustainability Hub, we think it is important to be a part of the Worcester community. We want to use our knowledge to educate others about energy efficiency and sustainable practices that can be used in everyday life. We host a variety of energy-related outreach events for local organizations, families, schools, and community members.

  • Recreation Worcester: A summer program for Worcester children where we provide short lessons on energy.

  • Farmers’ Markets: Throughout the summer and fall, we have a table at the Regional Environmental Council farmers’ markets to provide residents with information on the Hub and energy conservation. Our ambassadors also sell LED light bulbs, with proceeds going to the Worcester Boys and Girls Club.

    Local Worcester Events: The Sustainability Hub participates in community events to provide a space for customers and community members to learn about energy efficiency and sustainability. We have attended community festivals such as the Broad Meadow Brook Butterfly Festival, the Worcester Home Show, the Worcester Pride Festival, and other community and cultural festivals. We also do education outreach with local schools, technical schools, colleges, and groups like the Girl Scouts and Boy Scouts.

    Our ambassadors provide numerous hands-on education sessions both at the Hub and at local schools and community locations. Please contact us if you would like to set up one of these education sessions.
